It's a play. In a pool. Actually in a pool. Everyone's next question is always, "is it empty?" No. It's a filled pool. Filled with water of course. And my cast mates and I are going to put on quite the show. In it.
The piece was conceived and is being directed by Erin Mee. (Here's a great interview with Erin conducted by Jonathan Mandell from the New York Theater website.) The original material for this piece was written by Charles Mee and has been beautifully supplemented by up-and-coming playwright Jessie Bear. The two styles flow seamlessly together in what is truly a unique New York experience. The piece uses everything from choreographed water dances, to music and, of course, the written word to touch on all aspects of the joys, insecurities and politics surrounding pools today, yesterday and tomorrow. It will leave you smiling but thinking.

Tickets are on-sale now. And when you come to the show be sure to wear some pants you can roll above the knee cause this is an immersive theatre-going event...you can literally immerse your feet in the pool while you watch. That's a bonus. From us to you.
